"SSgt William J. Moore and Airman First Class Jerry M. Wall were crewmen assigned to a C123B squadron which was dispatched on a Candlestick mission on May 18, 1966. The aircraft was dropping flares about 45 miles east of the city of Pleiku in Binh Dinh Province when it was hit by enemy fire and crashed.

Among the crew of the aircraft, only Wall and Moore are missing. Public information provided by the Air Force does not indicate the fates of the rest of the crew; whether they were killed and their bodies recovered or whether they were rescued alive is unknown."

"Sergeant Wall was the loadmaster on a C-123B Aircraft which was on a flare dropping mission when he was reported missing in action. The aircraft was observed by ground personnel to catch on fire and crash. Evidence of death on Sergeant Wall was received in The Department of the Air Force on May 21, 1966. Since his remains have not been recovered and returned he is listed by The Department of Defense as unaccounted for in Southeast Asia."
